3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours dark amber with a fading head.
Super hoppy aroma, lots of peach, orange blossom, lemon, nectarine and confectionery. Also some soft biscuity malt.
Toasty malt as a flavour, along with some of the aforementioned fruit. A bit grassy.
Too much carbonation.

Bottle from Acland Cellars in a tulip glass on 9/3/2013. Pours golden brown with a fairly minimal off white head. Strong fruity aroma with elements of tropical/stone fruit and a hint of pine. A mild, slightly caramel malt body with a pleasant bitterness on the finish. A very drinkable pale ale.

Bottle, not sure where from. Aromas of peach, caramel, grass, very well balanced. Taste is sweet and bitter, with average length. Palate is velvety, and medium bodied. Amber, with a frothy head.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
From a 330ml bottle on 15/2/2013. Pours an opaque dark golden with a biggish off white head. Has a quite a pleasant fruity nose, with some stone fruit and melon present. Flavour wise, the fruit again dominates, with apricot particularly prominent. There’s also a touch of caramel malt and some yeasty notes. Finishes off with a relatively firm bitterness. The carbonation is lively but not over the top. A very solid pale, though more English than American in style imo.

Bottle from slow beer. Pours muddy brown with a small disappearing white head. Nose upfront has citrus, stone fruit and pine. Taste has a pine hop bitterness. Nice caramel malt backing. Palate is left crisp with a nice hop bitterness. Very fruit driven pale ale. Nice stuff
